Join ASI’s book chat to discuss our picks of Nordic novels, all translated by ASI language instructor Rachel Willson-Broyles

In January, we will talk about Quicksand, written by Malin Persson Giolito. 

What's it about?

“A mass shooting has taken place at a prep school in Stockholm’s wealthiest suburb. Maja Norberg is eighteen years old and on trial for her involvement in the massacre where her boyfriend and best friend were killed…But how did Maja, the good girl next door who was popular and excelled at school, become the most hated teenager in the country? QUICKSAND is an incisive courtroom thriller and a drama that raises questions about the nature of love, the disastrous side effects of guilt, and the function of justice.” – Penguin Random House
